lyrics

Your son could keep us
from falling to pieces
Hollow of the hand
Host is light a lamb
The ninety and nine that lay
The ninety and nine that lay
Your son couldn't keep us
From falling to pieces
Callow gentlemen
Strike you where you stand
The ninety and nine that lay
The ninety and nine that lay
Your son…
The autumn the omen the ninety and nine
This is what they bring
They slaughtered the showmen the ninety and nine
One thousand tongues to sing
All that run will pass
With a sounding brass
The ninety and nine that lay
The ninety and nine that lay
Your son couldn't keep us
From falling to pieces
Fed on living bread
Tilted straight on end
The ninety and nine that lay
The ninety and nine that lay
Your son…
The autumn the omen the ninety and nine
Is this what they bring
They slaughtered the showmen the ninety and nine
One thousand tongues to sing
And I’ll do the same thing again
Break the fall again
Over and over again
I’ll break the fall

about

Northern Arms Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Northern Arms are masters of haunting moods and striking storytelling. Helmed by singer and songwriter Keith Richard Peirce, the ten-piece band incorporates dark imagery with a musical mystique that hits on jazz, folk, and gospel, and blends it with gothic Americana in the vein of 16th Horsepower, Tom Waits and legendary Austin cult faves Lift to Experience.
